DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Forensic experts investigating possible Srebrenica genocide mass graves have found a historical location which is believed to have originated in Roman times. The mass grave contains sceletal remains of women dating back to the XV. century. It is located near the settlement of Budak in Srebrenica.

It is expected that the mass grave will serve as a historical location arranged as a museum in the open and accessible to tourists.

"The next task that awaits us is the production of high quality project documentation for the exterior decoration of this place. I hope that the Srebrenica municipality and archeological research institutes will lend us their hand to help finalize this project," said Suljo Čakanović, Srebrenica Municipal MP.
